33rd Annual IFIP WG 11.3 Conference on Data and Application Security and Privacy (DBSec'19)

July 15 - 17, 2019

There is a limited amount of travel fund available to support CEC graduate students to participate at this internationally ranked research conference. The conference is in Charleston during July 15 - 17, 2019. The travel support will cover all expenses, including conference registration, hotel (July 14 - 17), and transportation. The DBSec'19 conference attracts participants from data security and privacy research communities as well as from different application areas. This year's highlights are in the areas of online social harms, cyber situational awareness, mobile application and network security, cyber attacks, malware, and code security. A unique aspect of the IFIP 11.3 working conference is that it is structured so participants have ample time to discuss relevant topics. This is especially beneficial for graduate students. Take advantage to meet and discuss your research with internationally ranked researchers.

Applications must be received by May 30, 5:00 pm EST
